Abstract

Paper presented at the BGA 3rd International Conference in Geoenvironmental Engineering. This chapter discusses a programme of groundwater monitoring at an industrial site in west London. Redevelopment of the site revealed high levels of pollution. Limited excavation works and groundwater extraction were carried out but groundwater sampling continued to show high levels of pollution. A ground water monitorring programme was used to investigate the potential for co-degradation of petroleum fuel and trichloroethylene.
